Translator’s joy after 15-year quest

I’ve been using PDF editor for 15 years now. Paid, unpaid, free or open source. None, and I mean none of the well-known names in this market provided me with this combination of easy-to-learn, easy-to-use translation related processes.

My main need today is translating PDF docs from English to Spanish to take advantage of a wealth of literature in the Safety industry that it is not transferrable to Spanish-speaking environments.

As an educator and consultant, this ability that InFix provides is invaluable.

PDF Editor House Loan Happiness

Another insurance agent referred this product [Infix PDF Editor] to me and I absolutely love it!

There are times when a mortgage company needs an immediate update to a form that our system may take a day or two to update. This has solved that problem for us and improve our service!

We can now quickly response and provide an updated document within seconds. It is very easy to use and the price beats its competition by a long shot. I will definitely be recommending this product to others!

Thanks!

Editing Greek PDFs

I have received a sample price list in PDF and I tried to make some necessary changes as to to change names and description of the products into my language (Greek).

I tried to do by using edit command of Acrobat but it was impossible.

Then a friend of mine suggested to try to download infix PDF editor.

I did it and in minutes I corrected all the names to Greek. It was the easiest, fastest more accurate work.

I would like to suggest to anyone who wants to make changes on any PDF document to try Infix PDF editor.

A true PDF spell-check – worth the admission price

Just the spell check alone is worth the money.

As far as I know, there is no other PDF application nor plug in can really spell check the actual contents of the PDF, not even Acrobat itself. All others product claims to preform check can only check the “Comments” field.

Some even suggest to go back to the original document file to run spell check there. Which is unpractical as most of us receive PDF file without the access to the original and we need to spell the PDF file.

All the other features in Infix [are] just as good as Acrobat if not better. The “Contents Text Box” works well for extracting text from various part of the document and replace back to same file. Good for contents requiring translation.

A time saver for this type of task if you need to have a few rounds of translation edits.

Antique books restored with PDF editor

Your product is simply wonderful.

We’ve tried most products regarding PDF conversion and editing but none offer the flexibility and ease of use as Infix.

We restore books of antiquity and create new pages without the blemishes, library stamps and the like. Your product makes our job much easier and we are able to produce wonderful replicas of works of beauty restoring books of old.

The additional features regarding tracking revisions and document protection are perfect for our business or any business that wishes to protect their PDF content on-line that has a collaborative workforce working on various aspects of a document.

We especially like the “lightweight” impact on our systems meaning your product loads fast, does not slow down any operating system, and is compatible with office production and work-flow programs.

We highly recommend Infix Pro for small or large projects.
Please consider Infix Pro as your company standard for PDF editing. We did.

Malware

Managing Malware & Virus Risks in PDF Documents

Whilst we boast that Infix is immune to all PDF viruses, not all PDF viewers or editing programs can say the same and it’s important that users are aware of what to look out for when they receive a PDF that contains multimedia content and/or hyperlinks (2 of the most common causes of malware spread via a PDF document).

Help with filling-out PDF tax returns

I help non-resident landlords with their tax returns and find Infix PDF Editor incredibly helpful for filling out forms for companies and individuals. It’s very easy to use and makes editing forms quick and hassle free; I used to do drafts by hand for clients with multiple accounts – there is now no need to as I can simply make changes to the form on my PC and email clients their drafts.

Fantastic product that I can highly recommend for home or office use! Very good for those that do self assessment.
